One Mixed Berry Smoothie - Two Ways & a Hint Water Giveaway

We're kicking off the unofficial start to summer with this deliciously refreshing recipe! We’re hoping it will inspire you to stay hydrated all summer long. That's because staying properly hydrated ensures your body runs like a smooth operating machine even when temperatures peak. You can check out our blog, featured by the National Processed Raspberry Council for more hydration tips here (disclaimer: we consult for the National Processed Raspberry Council and happily share our love of red raspberries).

One Mixed Berry Smoothie Recipe - Two Ways

Aside from the beverages you drink, foods you eat contribute to your total water consumption too. Some foods, however – such as fruits, veggies, and yogurt – have a higher water content than most foods. That's where this recipe comes in. It's a really delicious and healthy way to help you meet your hydration needs. 

The Recipe:

¾ cup frozen mixed berries
6 ounces Greek yogurt
½ cup milk or milk alternative

Pour all ingredients into a blender. Blend until smooth. Add ice if desired.

#1 - The Good Ole’ Mixed Berry Smoothie

Once blended, simply pour the frozen beverage into a glass!

#2 - Mixed Berry Smoothie Popsicles

Once blended, pour into Popsicle stands. Place in the freezer overnight.

Speaking of hydration, we drink water  a lot – so sometimes it’s just so nice to change it up with something special like Hint Water. Hint Water is such a fun and delicious spin on plain ol’ H20. 

THE GIVEAWAY: Hint Water is generously giving away a variety pack of their best-selling flavors, Blackberry and Watermelon, as well as their new flavors Crisp Apple and Blood Orange to one reader. The idea behind Hint is simple: purified water + a splash of natural flavor. No sugar, no diet sweeteners, and no preservatives or additives. Its water made tasty. You can get Hint Water still or fizzy!  You can now buy direct from Hint (click here).

[Disclosure: Hint sent me their new flavors and Hint Fizz to review for this post.  I was not paid for this post. All opinions are my own, included this one: I love hint, and the Watermelon flavor and Crisp Apple is]
